John H. Dunning Prize Recipients
The John H. Dunning Prize was created in 1927 by a bequest from Miss Mathilda M. Dunning, stipulating that a prize in American history be established in the name of her father. This biennial prize was first awarded in 1929, and has been awarded in odd-numbered years since 1991.
The prize is offered for the best book on any subject pertaining to the history of the United States.
